Going in again. dangerous moment. Tighten that. Bolt Yeah, it's turning, it turns, but it likes to get locked up.

Oh it's coming farther than it had before. Come on out baby. Come on No God please no no no no no no oh no. Broke it off.

That's it. I'm I'm in I'm in trouble now shy.

    It sucks you have to buy a new block

    I hate Subarus for a reason!

    Welcome to Canada , Ray!!!

    I feel your pain! All of us have had a bad day like that!

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars A Dot In The Shark says:

    Ended up needing a replacement engine. There was hope until an EZ-Out was tried and broke.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Clearanceman2 says:

    And now we know that water pump was original to the car. This is one reason to change these things at least every other timing belt.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jochen Stacker says:

    Das ist ganz großer Scheißdreck!
    Commiserations.😢

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Grimm says:

    Crappy grad bolts

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Clearanceman2 says:

    Ray, you're awesome to admit this. I mean you went wrong with the easy out getting stuck or you would have been able to drill it out. Once the engine is out of the car, you might still be able to drill it out. Most people wouldn't have admitted this mistake which has happened to people before of course.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Skysurfer says:

    One thing to think about as a help… leaving the casting in place, use the hole the bolt come out of as a guide for drilling, to get pretty much dead centre of the broken stud. After that… who knows? Great video, Ray. Happens to everyone, now & again.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars lovetolearn 52 says:

    This is going to sound crazy but i quit doing oil changes at my shop for this exact reason. A quick oil change turns in to a 2hr affair because the guy before cross thread,stripped or jerry rigged the plug. Then the customer says it wasn't like that when it came in. Im not blaming the customer because they had no clue.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Erin Sherman says:

    I instinctively cursed on your behalf when the bolt broke lol

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John A Fleenor says:

    That is such a horrible feeling when that happens, especially after taking the time to work it back and forth for so long.

    I pretty much had this same thing happen during a water pump swap out myself. Also had the wandering hole, but it happened while drilling out a broken drill bit instead of an easy-out. Lucky for me, it was a steel block.

    I was able to grind down the broken drill bit for a flat surface and got it drilled out. Then I filled the hole by welding it. Ground the weld flat and re-drilled and tapped a new hole. Problem solved.

    I’m not sure of that was the “correct” way to solve the issue, but that is what worked. It was a “do or die trying” type of repair as they needed their car back the same day to be able to get to work the next day.

    As if the time frame wasn’t bad enough to deal with, then one of those bolts breaking off just send your heart straight to your toes. 😡

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Hook says:

    is it possible to drill out everything (EZ Out, bolt) and insert a heli-coil(?)

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars neville says:

    Suggest that you speak to Eric O.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Krause says:

    Should have cut the head off the bolt, the pump would come off and you would have full access to the bolt shank.

    I'll take reasons I don't want a Subaru for $200

    been there, done that, but it's still save able…🫣🫣🫣

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! rob burdack says:

    best thing i ever did was invest in low temp aluminum brazing rods … drill out larger than the bolt back fill the hole with the rod redrill and tap job done

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars yensabi says:

    Been there a few times , you just feel like shit when it happens but then you gotta get it out. 😂

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Captain Butt nuggets says:

    Yep I hate that!

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wim O says:

    Scheiße (sorry)

    Bad Luck Ray. Sometimes that’s the Way the Cookie Crumbles. Just keep Going forward my Friend. What’s happened has gone. Steve Westmoreland 👨🏻‍🦳♿️🇬🇧🛠️❤️👍👍

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Damoinion says:

    Been there, done that. Time to break out the heli-coil set.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Geordie Gixxer says:

    Oh no… 😮

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MickyMouse999 says:

    All our hearts dropped for you as that dreaded moment the torque decreased and you realised it had snapped. We all know how near every rusted bolt is to a disaster.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerel Lawson says:

    Should have used antiseize if it's in aluminum.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jake Jakeman says:

    Something like this happens every time I touch my car to fix it.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave J says:

    It's far from ruined.
    You can still get that bolt out even with the easi-out broke in there.
    However, i keep telling you in the comments that heat is the key but you obviously don't read comments. .because you obviously know better.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Frank says:

    That sht's so fked up, take that sht out and fix it. lol

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Square Wheel says:

    This was as tense as the last 2 minutes of a tied football game .

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Maxime Jette says:

    yup…i know exactly how that feel

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars spelunkerd says:

    I've had so many complications and failures with easy outs through the years, I try to avoid them now. For drilling out a recessed bolt you can use a hinge bit that comes with a guide to center the drill bit (search "hinge bit set"), or maybe use some kind of bushing if you can find one of the right size. Especially in aluminum you've only got one chance to drill the pilot hole straight, since any bit will tend to walk to the side and damage softer aluminum. I feel the pain, not easy. Bravo to Ray for posting this experience, life is not all roses.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JESUS YESHUA EL ELYON elshadai Adon Ori haaretz says:

    Just add more silicone rtv and put all other bolts back itl work just fine

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Darker Binding says:

    Ouch 😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tim Morello says:

    Drill it out and throw a coil in it.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DirtyMig0pp7 says:

    Hey Ray. Let me come work for you. I. A good welder and mechanic 😅

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Shelton says:

    I hate it when two dissimilar metals meet and then bond together. I have had some luck using liquid nitrogen on the steel bolt. the aluminum freaks out and said "Okay man, it's all yours"

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BEASTLYDROK says:

    Just take the pump off drill out the rest of the bolt and extract replace and reuse gasket if it’s new and never been crushed fully it’s not the worst thing ive ever seen had plenty of turbo down pipes strip out or break completely so there’s no taking the engine out. u get to extract in the smallest spot right on the firewall

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gerald Schittenhelm says:

    When you start swearing in German you know you REALLY messed up 😭🤬

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars fubar totale says:

    Just a shout out to all the geniuses blaming this on it being a Subaru, like this has never happened to any other car make.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars fubar totale says:

    Heat the easy out to anneal it.
    There is a type of EDM that is designed to disintegrate taps, there might be one rigged with extension leads.

    If you gave a known good motor there, a used one is a crap shoot, try to save the original.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jay Dee says:

    Should have hit it with some heat

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tim Johnson says:

    Left handed drill bits. Get some. It'll make this easy work.
